Recommend you use 4.9-RELEASE

You can, but the other machine would be better.  Your firewall machine
is not very powerful, plus it's generally better to separate server
functions from firewalling if you can.

Basically, yes: the web server will work a lot quicker if it can keep
a memory cache of files rather than having to read them off disk every
time.  How much memory you need depends on your site's content and
whether you're using such things as CGI, PHP or Java servlets.

You're unlikely to get completely free IP connectivity, but if you
hunt around for an ISP or Hosting provider you may find one that will
give you a service package that suits you.
